When a new life enters our home, the entire living space needs to be adjusted to accommodate the new member and provide a suitable environment for the child’s growth. Children have different needs compared to adults, and we should also consider the changes that come with their growth. Therefore, it’s important to put extra thought into the design. Today, Designpedia will share 5 small tips for children’s home design with you!


1. Increase Storage Space

From toys during early childhood to books, pianos, and other supplies used for learning, children’s growth involves a wide variety of belongings. It is essential to categorize and organize these items to maintain a tidy home, so planning adequate storage space is crucial.

Platform storage is also a very popular choice as it allows for storage of large and infrequently used items.

2. Furniture that Grows with Your Child

Children grow quickly, and it’s not just their clothing that needs to be changed frequently; furniture needs to be adjusted as well. If beds, desks, and other furniture items are not sized appropriately, it can have a long-term impact on the physical and mental well-being of children. Don’t want to constantly spend money on purchasing new furniture? You can also choose flexible designs that offer adjustable sizes and heights, making the furniture more durable and accommodating as your child grows.

3. Pay Attention to Home Safety

Children are active and love to run and jump around, making them prone to accidents. Therefore, it’s important to consider safety issues in room design. To prevent children from bumping into sharp corners of furniture, you can add corner protectors. Additionally, using furniture with anti-tipping devices can prevent accidents caused by climbing.

It is also advisable to use materials that are easy to clean and maintain, making it easier to handle when children draw or make marks on them.

4. Create a Family Fun Space

Aa space for play and family bonding is essential. In addition to a comfortable seating area in the living room, you can also incorporate an open kitchen design to increase parent-child interaction. This allows for enjoyable moments of cooking and dining together in a warm and welcoming environment.
